The Magnum Force 5800 from CBI is a mid-sized upswing unit designed for contractors dealing with lower production needs or transportation restrictions. According to CBI, decreasing headaches from load restrictions and permitting was one of the primary design goals of the 5800. The unit’s offset helix rotor, anvil and screen designs and dimensions remain similar to the 6800 in order to retain its high levels of grinding performance. However, the 5800’s rotor width is decreased to produce a machine with a total width under 8 feet 6 inches (2.55 m), weighing 64,850 pounds.
The Magnum Force 5800 grinder is ideal for yard waste and demolition wood processors, as well as mulch yards that demand high-volume throughput and maximum reliability. The 5800 features a high lift upper roll for ease of maintenance; high torque, hydrostatic feed system; PT Tech hydraulic PTO; and a Caterpillar engine. High strength drum rotor and screen system are shear pin protected. Plus, the entire system is controlled by CBI’s IntelliGrind logic incorporating a variable infeed speed that automatically adjusts to engine load and an optional modem communications system that provides for real-time system diagnostics.
